Assembly Component Weight

Pardon and initial confusion if I can't get into words what my brain is thinking.  Our assemblies consist of various steel and aluminum parts as well as fasterners.  At the completion of the job, we have to track how much of each metal we are using for that job.  Is there a way to get the weights of just the aluminum parts and have that weight populated into our title block?  We also need to do this for the steel, but it would be the same principal.  I know that we can add a text box in the property tab builider and link that to the Solidworks mass, but that will give the weight of the whole assembly.  Any ideas?
